Asahikawa Ramen Aoba

Delicious Asahikawa shoyu ramen in Hokkaido

Asahikawa Ramen Aoba is known as the birthplace of Asahikawa-style ramen. Founded in 1947, this family-run restaurant serves a special double soup blending seafood with vegetables and the more traditional pork and chicken bone stock to create a unique and complex flavor. The chef and staff are friendly and make it a point to get to know all of their customers. The ramen can be ordered in traditional shoyu (soy sauce), shio (salt) or miso flavor. For bigger appetites, extra chashu pork can also be ordered. The thickness of the soup can be adjusted to one's taste. In general, the flavor is light and satisfying. An English menu is available. When finished, remember to leave a review in their notebook.

Ramen Aoba is easy to find and a five minute walk down the main street (Midoribashi street) from JR Asahikawa station. It is open early enough in the day for a breakfast meal or early dinner.
